The Invisible Man
Submitted by Carol from West Virginia
4th Grade

My students love to do this activity. I call it "Invisible Man". First, draw two large "stick-type" figures on the board. Be sure to give each of them the same number of body parts. I draw 13 parts for each: two eyes, two ears, nose, mouth, head, hair, body, two arms, and two legs. I usually make one to be a girl and the other to be a boy (by different hair styles). Divide the class into two teams. If I do the boy/girl figures, I do boys against girls.

How the game works: start with team 1--give the first person a spelling word. He must say-spell-say it. If he is correct, he gets to erase a body part from the opponents' figure. Then go to the other team and repeat the procedure. If the word is not properly done, no part is erased. Keep going until one team has totally erased the other's person. Hence, Invisible Man!

Spelling Scavenger Hunt

Set up: Write the spelling words on index cards and "hide" them all over the room. Keep them in plain sight, but tape them up on different walls, on the chalkboards, on the door, won the wondows, on the bookshelf, etc.

How to Play:

Pair up the students and give each group a spelling list.

They have to find the words in the room.

When they find a word, they walk up to it. Student 1 turns his back to the word, and spells it. If he spells it correctly, his partner will put an check next to the word on their word list.

Student 2 then walks up to the same word and turns his back to it. He spells the word aloud. If correct, student 1 puts a check next to it on the word list.

The two students then go and find another word and repeat the process.

The kids love this game because it allows them to move about the room and because they get to work with a partner. It's great spelling practice and students can work on this without much teacher help.
